NOT a Romance

This isn't a Romance story. This is a Domestic Violence-ridden Rape fantasy disguised as a Romance. Don't read this book if you've been in a violent or controlling relationship -- it's likely to cause flashbacks. (And no, I haven't been in a violent relationship, I just...
This isn't a Romance story. This is a Domestic Violence-ridden Rape fantasy disguised as a Romance. Don't read this book if you've been in a violent or controlling relationship -- it's likely to cause flashbacks. (And no, I haven't been in a violent relationship, I just work with survivors of Domestic Violence.)

The "hero" in this book engages is a bully. He is jealous, insecure, and intimidating, and the first scene that involved intercourse was just shy of force. Rather than sweep her off her feet, he forces her down and orders her not to refuse him. I get that some women like a strong man, but there's a difference between strength and force.

In addition to those complaints, the story is far too short, and has pretty much no plot. He cuts the victim (oh, sorry, heroine) off from her job. He pays her debts so that she is obligated to him. Then he immediately accuses her of cheating or wanting someone else when she shows the slightest hesitation at their situation. Denying sex? Not a possibility.

I was truly disgusted.
